Working on the assumptions that literature should be presented to students in ways that will help them to experience the literary work rather than merely to think about it and that the teaching of literature ought to grow out of the teacher's and student's reading of it, this book is divided into two sections. The first section describes the nature of literary experience and the kinds of approaches that different readers take to literature in order to attain that experience; and the second...

During the 1950s, when it first began, Readers Theatre was textual in its emphasis; it involved the group reading of literature and the staging of poems and poets' stories, essays, and scenes. In its second stage, during the sixties, Readers Theatre became a directors' art; it was the director who adapted and arranged the literature and whose creativity and insight gave Readers Theatre its continuing growth and energy. The third stage, now in process, is a performer-centered period in which the...

Thirteen micrographic events have been identified which are expected to have the greatest impact on the libraries of today and tomorrow. They can be divided into two groups: Nine are of a technological nature and involve micrographic products; the remaining four are basically educational in nature and reflect positive responses from the library community to a changing micrographic technology. Most of the 13 have taken place within the past five years. Only recently have most events become...

Noting that an important trend in middle school reading instruction has been the increased use of literature and trade books, this paper suggests that using Caldecott Medal and Honor books in the middle school classroom is an effective way to expose students to high quality literature. The paper notes that promoting the use of such books also aids in developing an appreciation for art, art styles, and media used by illustrators. The paper then lists procedures for using Caldecott Medal and...

This paper reconsiders the nature of literature as a school subject. Musing on three anomalies that occur when language arts teachers consider their professions about school literature and what occurs in literature classrooms: (1) the anomaly of the text and the textbook; (2) the anomaly of the idolatry of naive readers whose heads have been "stuffed"; and (3) the anomalous role of the writer in literature and writing programs, the paper contends that these anomalies only serve to...

Children's literature is discussed in terms of 10 values which it may bring to readers. Some of these values are personal, involving pleasure, imagination, literary appreciation, or a chance to identify with the hero in a book. Some of the values are functional, involving information about today's world; discussions of art, music, or literature; or accounts of factual history. Each of the 10 values discussed is illustrated by a listing of several books which deal with that value on levels for...

While literature on multicultural education indicates that Human Relations approaches to multicultural education are the most commonly practiced, such approaches also tend to be the most heavily critiqued by theorists. Scholars often offer speculative theoretical suggestions on how to improve upon Human Relations approaches. However, ethnographic case studies showing how such suggestions are carried out in the artroom at the elementary level are virtually non-existent in the literature. This...

Not so many years ago, comic books in school were considered the enemy. Students caught sneaking comics between the pages of bulky--and less engaging--textbooks were likely sent to the principal. Today, however, comics, including classics such as "Superman" but also their generally more complex, nuanced cousins, graphic novels, are not only regarded as educational tools by savvy teachers, they are also taken seriously as literature and an art form in their own right. Comic books can...

The idea that when we read a work of literature we are seeking to find a meaning which lies inside that work seems completely commonsensical. Literary texts possess meaning; readers extract that meaning from them. We call the process of extracting meaning from texts reading or interpretation. Despite their apparent obviousness, such ideas have been radically challenged in contemporary literary and cultural theory. Works of literature, after all, are built from systems, codes and traditions...
